Nollywood Actress, Mercy Aigbe, has responded to critics about her relationship with another woman’s husband as she revealed that she also deserves to be happy.
Speaking on a talk show which aired on TVC on Thursday, one of the hosts of the programme, Your View, Morayo Afolabi-Brown stated that in the process of refuting the claim that the actress’ ex-husband, Lanre Gentry, and her current husband, Adeoti Kazim, were friends, Mercy told her that her now-husband, Adeoti Kazim is a Muslim and their tradition makes him entitled to having more than one wife and that she deserves to be happy even as a second wife.
Morayo said, “I spoke to her (Mercy) last night, she called me to correct an impression and that it is wrong for us to say, ‘how can she go and marry her ex-husband’s best friend. She said they were never friends. They only attended an event where her present husband, a marketer in the industry, invited her to his birthday party, which she had attended in her ex-husband’s company.
“She told me that the man is a Muslim, he’s entitled to more than one wife, so yes, he has issues with the first wife, and he is now married to her as the second wife and as a second wife, doesn’t she deserve to be happy?”
Recall that last week, Mercy disclosed her new beau, Adeoti Kazim, who is still married to his Nigerian wife based in the United States with their four children. Mercy has since received backlash especially on social media.
